Long-Term Disability Lawyer in Calgary

At Calgary’s Ludwar Law Firm, many of our province-wide clients come to us after having disability claims turned down by insurance companies or by Canada Pension Plan.


The burden is on you to prove that you are disabled. Insurance companies in Alberta and Saskatchewan are not required to conduct their own investigations of your ability to work and often do a poor job of telling you what is needed to prove your disability. So even if you have a doctor's report, your insurance company may not accept it.


Often, the problem is not that you aren't disabled; it's that your evidence isn't considered good enough.


Representing Clients Suffering from a Range of Ailments

As your disability lawyers in Calgary, we can get your insurance company or Canada Pension Plan to look at your disability evidence again.


You don't need to have a specific diagnosis to "prove" your disability; you only need to show that you cannot work. Because many conditions have very similar symptoms, some of our clients have been given many different diagnoses by different doctors. Some of the more common conditions we see are:


Many of these conditions are difficult to prove and are not taken seriously by insurance companies. Our Calgary long-term disability claims lawyer knows how to explain your functional limitations and how they prevent you from doing your job. We can also explain your prognosis and how that may affect your future.


There are many reasons why you may have been denied benefits:

  • Your symptoms were not properly "proven."
  • You still have the ability to do jobs that are similar to your own.
  • You still have the ability to perform some parts of your former job.
  • You have the ability to work at some jobs, even if they are significantly lower wage than what you had before your disability.
  • With conditions such as depression, chronic pain or chronic fatigue syndrome, because you are sometimes able to perform all or parts of your former job, you may be considered "able to work" even if you are unable to show up for work reliably.
  • Your disability may not have been considered serious enough.
